There are numerous alternatives for access platforms nowadays. There is a lift designed for virtually any business and jobsite application. These self-propelled machines increase efficiency and boost productivity.
Scissor lifts are constructed of an assembly of crossed tubes that work in a scissor-like way to lower and raise a platform. Mostly utilized on firm, level surfaces, these lifts offer access to high places directly over the lift. Scissor lifts are valued for their heavy lifting capacities and their large decks that allow the operator to transport big and heavy tools and supplies. A platform deck extension slides or rolls out to provide a spacious work area.
Scissor lifts range in size from 6.57-18.15 meters in height and .76 meters-2.29 meters in width. Wider lifts usually have larger deck areas, as well as greater extension capability and lift capacity. The manufacturer's model numbers can be utilized to identify the height of the platform and machine width.
The best choice for outdoor application is the rough-terrain scissor lift. They are designed to be durable and tough in demanding construction worksites. They have four-wheel drive with large platforms, efficient lift speed and positive traction control. They are commonly used for maintenance, installation and construction.
Electric scissor lifts are the most mobile models. They have the advantage of being less noisy and could fit through standard doorways. They allow maximum workspace for more workers and larger loads. Their high steering angles and hard-rubber tires guarantee excellent maneuverability. Electric scissor lifts are often used in indoor applications connected to ventilation, electrical works and air conditioning.
